Rockfax Description
A memorable climb, its two upper pitches especially containing some great climbing. They are split by an exposed belay. Start at the base of the reddish left-slanting rake.
1) 26m. Climb pleasantly up the rake to a small ledge where it steepens.
2) 4b, 12m. Step up and then pull up right on good holds to a small slanting overhang and make a tricky move past it to a good ledge. Move up the wall into a slabby bay and traverse left to good wire belays in a crack. A great stance.
3) 4c, 20m. Climb the technical crack and corner above to finish. © Rockfax

Triangular lead - three ropes, three people and three pitches. I lead pitch one, and belayed Ben up to my stance, and Ben to a sub stance below the top of pitch one, whereby he setup a camping chair and started reading famous five books. Tom then came up to my stance and lead through to pitch two. Tom shouted something down - Ben and I agreed this was "off belay". Upon acting on what we thought we heard, Tom made some scared noises and we quickly put him back on (it later turned out he was shouting to Cam Ree and Ian Kidson). Ben then seconded up to Tom's stance and lead through pitch three, complete with camping chair and Enid Blyton literature. I climbed up the brilliantly airy pitch two, belayed by both Tom at the top of pitch two and Ben at the top of pitch three, where Tom greeted me by "welcome to slab belay hell". I then climbed up to Ben through the thin slabby moves in pitch three on greasy granite. Very good lead by Ben. Tom then came up, completing the pyramidal alternative leading. A hilarious and fun way to climb!

Again, the guideboom description was missleading. Steve led the first pitch and belayed on a huge ledge but this seemed less.than 23m up. I led p2 which went on for waaaaay loger than 16m, eventually reching the bay after more like 30m, all of it plesant interesting climbing however but nothing i passed seemed like a decent belay ledge so im pretty sure where steve stopped was a better belay than what the book described. The final pitch was nice and a lot more tricky than it looked.

Despite it being the warmest and sunniest November day I can remember, the top two pitches of the route features some running water, making the friction slab and final corner very tricky (felt like an ice route). Foot slipped trying to get off the ledge into the final corner. The second attempt proved extremely desperate with lots of expletives resulting in my sketchiest run out for a while. I think the Rockfax line is either misleading for the second pitch, or I went off route.

I did 2nd pitch 4c 12m. It was only suppose to be short. But ended up with 3 things i don't like. Another move like little brown jug. i.e no obvious hand holds - after throwing rattle out of pram and with 3 bits of protection i went for it. To find a slopping ledge. Pete had said it was a good belay point. So now Iam putting up a hanging belay with wires. because it was a short pitch I left most of gear with Pete. Pete came up and lead through and then descended down to start of final of Autumn flakes so we could tick off both climbs. Always an adventure at Bosi

Led second pitch, which seemed hardened than a 4b! Went up right under overhang, then up steeply and left, then up and left into niche on this pitch. Pretty sure this isn't right for pitch two, more like part of the second pitch of Paradise. Also belayed form the middle of the open ledge, whereas it is better to belay left by the crack.

lead all 3 pitches. Enjoyed it, but found both the slab at the top of pitch 2 and the crux of pitch 3 nervy due to wet rock. Milla's first MP, great to be up there with her.

Great climb, but the crux on pitch 2 was not a 4b move (unless I was off route - bit don't think I was [edit - I think I was off route and did the same as "minexplorer" below - felt like a 5a move up the crack on the right] )! P3 really fun on a nice technical crack and corner.

Backed off the third pitch due to intermittent drizzle, uncertainty about the route, lack of faith in the belay and general lethargy, helped by a handy abseil rope placed by another party. Must try it again some time, as it would be a nice route in good conditions.

1st pitch unremarkable. Got hopelessly lost on the second pitch, so found it hard and a little serious for the grade. For the 2nd pitch, I went right as per guide and then climbed the narrowing leftward ramp, then headed left over an exposed bulge to layback up and right to the stance. No idea if this is correct or not. Third pitch was dry and a breeze compared to the second!
